Explantory Note 

The next characteristic is stated in translation as 'cruel', but in the Arabic original this is utull, which by its very sound connotes a host of features that no group of words can adequately describe. The one who is utull is cruel, unfriendly, gluttonous, heavy handed, mean, given to treating others badly.
